An update on the scandal that hit the CBPL.  And it seems like prosecutors are also going after Shin Nakagomi, former manager of the Elephants.

Via eTaiwanNews:

Brother Elephants star outfielder Chen Chih-yuan and former La New Bears pitcher Chang Chih-chia could face two years in prison after prosecutors announced a list of 24 indictments in Taiwan’s most recent baseball game-fixing scandal Wednesday.

After the announcement, the Elephants expelled Chen from the team, reports said. The player said he would file an appeal if he was convicted.


In a related development, the La New Bears team was reportedly suing 13 players for a total of over NT$100 million in compensation, including NT$4.56 million from Chang.
